Weekend Movie Guide: 22 Jump Street, How to Train Your Dragon 2

The team of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum returns to the big screen this weekend with 22 Jump Street. How to Train Your Dragon 2 also hits theaters. Walking with the Enemy is at Keller 8 Cinemas and Her is now available at your local Redbox.

Recapping Last Weekend

 

 The Fault in Our Stars took the weekend with just over $48 million in receipts. It will go down as one of the bigger successes of the year considering its budget of $12 million. Maleficent, in its second weekend, brought in another $34.3 million. Worldwide, the Angelina Jolie film has now brought in over $345 million. Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow couldn’t turn strong reviews into a really strong weekend and only brought in $28.76 million in its opening weekend. X-Men: Days of Future Past came in fourth with $15 million in its third weekend and A Million Ways to Die in the West rounded out the top five with $15 million.

Opening This Weekend

 

22 Jump Street

Rotten Tomatoes has high marks for this sequel, even calling “the rare sequel than improves on the original”. 21 Jump Street opened with $36 million back in March of 2012. Projections are as high as a $64 million opening weekend.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

The original How to Train Your Dragon brought in almost $500 million worldwide during its theater run in 2010. Its popularity has only increased since then. The original has raked in approximately $123 million in DVD sales since its release. Powered by strong 3D sales, this sequel could easily hit $70 million in its opening weekend.

 

Catch It Before It’s Gone

Keller 8 Cinema will be adding Walking with the Enemy, The Other Woman and Rio 2 this weekend. Walking with the Enemy is set in Budapest around the end of World War 2. It’s based on the true story of Pinchas Tibor Rosenbaum.

Make It A Redbox Night

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and Her are to the two biggest movies to hit the magical dvd machine this weekend.
